Is the transmitter output the same in all directions?Radiation patterns withheld
Hi, I have just moved into a house just outside Ballater (postcode AB35 5SB). Currently using the Tullich transmitter which only provides a very small portion of the Freeview channels.
Am I likely to get reception from the Durris transmitter with its full range of channels?

Yes, you should get good reception from Durris. It's predicted to be good for the PSBs and a little less so for the COMs, especially ArqB/COM6 which could be Varuiable to Good. Have a look at which way your neighbours aerials are pointing to see how they get on. Reception might vary a bit across your postcode.
